Winter gardening is a great first step for the novice gardener. There are many vegetables that grow best in the winter. The flavor and the quality of dark green , leafy vegetables (such as collards, kale, swiss chard, mixed salad greens, cabbage, and spinach) actually improve after a few frosts. Broccolli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts and garlic are also vegetables that produce best in the winter months.
One of the best things about winter gardening is the ease of maintenance. There is little to no weeding necessary. Watering needs are also much less since less water evaporates without the heat of summer. Pests problems are close to nonexistent. It is such a pleasure to see yummy veggies growing in your yard when so many other plants are dormant.
